Amphitheater Guidelines

In the Amphitheater we sit back and share a good song, offer a movie review, discuss sports, or anything in entertainment and family enjoyment.

If you need to refresh yourself on the decorum, now would be a good time.

    They should ban cotton, since they used to use slaves to pick it. Wearing cotton is racist!

    Source: Confederate flag gets 'Dukes of Hazzard' yanked


    The Duke Boys have been in trouble with the law since the day they was born, but now they're now feeling the wrath of Confederate flag protesters.

    TheWrap has confirmed that TV Land has pulled the 1980s-era comedy Dukes of Hazzard from its lineup because it featured a car called The General Lee that prominently displayed the flag on the roof.

    Warner Bros, which produced the show, recently announced they would cease production of all merchandise bearing the flag, including reproductions of The General Lee.

    Now the show itself, which ran for seven seasons, from 1979 to 1985, is being yanked.

    'Dukes of Hazzard' episodes pulled from TV Land

    The network has pulled episodes of "The Dukes of Hazzard" from its schedule, a spokesperson for TV Land confirmed on Wednesday.

    The network would not comment further on whether reruns of the series were pulled due to its inclusion of a 1969 Dodge Charger known as the "General Lee" which has the Confederate battle flag painted on its roof.

    TV Land, which is owned by Viacom (VIA), pulling the series comes a week after Warner Bros. consumer products said that it would stop licensing General Lee toy cars and models.

    "I will fight these people until hell freezes over," [Ben "Cooter"] Jones wrote. "And then I will fight them on the ice."
